How Thermion Works

Thermion users leverage fast optimization algorithms to mitigate financial risk while determining the best possible use of cyclic steam. The Tachyus platform intelligently recommends cyclic opportunities so that instead of manually sifting through vast quantities of data, engineers can focus on the most important challenges and questions for thermal operations. Thermion can also be deployed together with Atmion for a complete heat management solution in fields with both cyclic steam and steamflood recovery.

Tachyus’ Data Physics integrates the same fundamental physical principles found in traditional reservoir simulators with data science techniques such as machine learning to rapidly predict and optimize cyclic steam response. Engineers use Thermion not only to decide which wells to steam, but also to validate the underlying predictive models powering the Tachyus platform.

Engineers can explore a wide range of visualizations of past cyclic performance, potential cyclic plans, and expected cyclic response. Thermion reports are accessible on command center displays, workstations, and tablets in the field. It has never been easier for engineers to keep track of cyclic steam operations and to share reports and analysis with colleagues.
